Geography OlympicsAn estimable goal from Atlanta-based company A Broader View, has inspired this Flash game with a global perspective: help the United States improve its disappointing knowledge of geography by challenging it to participate with the rest of the world in a geographical testing game, the Geography Olympics. The game asks you first to select the country you will be representing, then it gives you 200 seconds to locate 10 random countries on a world map. Following the test, your answers are graded and averaged into the rest of your country's score and presented on the leader board. The current ranking of the US is paltry at best, and serves to prove the lack of geography knowledge in the United States relative to the rest of the world.

Truth be told, A Broader View sells geography products such as atlases, games, globes and puzzles, but their aim is also true: to provide the tools needed to become a geography expert. And if the United States of America is truly one of the great nations of the world, it is the responsibility of each and every one of us to be at least cognizant of the other countries in the world. So do your part, learn some geography and help improve the overall geography knowledge of your country. Click.

The Geography Olympics are a grand idea, and the objective of getting people to learn more geography is perhaps being met. But the game is a fraud. Despite disclaimers, any one can represent any country at all, build them up, or tear them down. And the three tries a days is also incorrect. All one needs to do to have more tries is disconnect from the internet, and reconnect. There is no control over any of this. So the results are entirely unreliable. Sorry - but they didn't think it out well enough.
